Instructions: (The pictures below show a different motif but the technique is the same for all paper lanterns)

1. Print out the pattern and have it enlarged (at a copy shop) so that the height of the lantern measures at least 12 cm or 4.8 inches. This will guarantee that the lantern is wide enough for the tea light candle.

2. Transfer the pattern and the inner markings onto orange cardstock.

Example 2 - Cutting the inside shapes out
3. First cut out the inside motifs.

Example 1 - Scoring the Lines
4. Use your stylus and score all of the inside lines for easier folding.

Example 5 - Adding glue to the flaps
5. Tear a piece of white fiber paper large enough to cover the inside wall behind the motif.

6. Fold the lantern together and add glue to the flaps so that can be pressed inside.

7. Adhere the flaps to the inside of the lantern and let dry.

8. Add tea light.
